Is that the magazine that featured Aaron Schock's buffed pecs?
I don't think it was gay porn in disguise. I sure never looked at it that way.
You've gotta be kidding, R5.
Not Men's Exercise or Men's Health but Men's Workout.
Men's Workout got me through my junior high years happy.
R5 is probably thinking of Men's Health, which is the "least" gay of the fitness mags (although it was the one that had Aaron Schock on the cover.)
Men's Workout regularly featured gay porn stars like Lex Baldwin here in very over the top, eroticized poses.
There was this guy who would interview the fitness models and would practically get a boner while he wrote about them.
WHET to Exercise for Men Only? That one didn't even bother to hide its gayness.
I guess its just because I find endless pics of over built up men, shaved etc, completely sexless.
"Men's Exercise" was always very transparent... hell, the name was even somewhat subliminal. Look at some covers and see how it's emphasized: "Men'[bold]sEX[/bold]ercise"
It's pretty blatent once you see it.
Teh interwebs killed soft-core gay porn.
How many different tips for six-pack abs can you fit around a centerfold?
How can you possibly objectify a man's body with the current styles of workout-wear?
And always the half-hearted two-page spread on how to please your woman.
Any fitness magazine that featured ads from the likes of "Musclehunks.com" could not be taken seriously.
